Jungle Girl fpx (preview release)


Recommended Posts

I love the classic Bally tables. They were the perfect definition of "easy to learn, fun to play, hard to master" as quoted by Harry Williams. When I decided to do this table, I thought about how much I wanted to pay tribute to those great classic games that I wasted so many quarters on in my youth. Jungle Girl is respectively dedicated to the people of Bally, for giving me a respite from the grind of life.

Jungle Girl is based on the comic book series from Dynamite Comics, and I selected that theme because you just can't get more pinball like than a pretty girl in a bikini fighting dinosaurs. I wish to thank all the talent that helped create this game.

This requires the latest version of BAM. (version 275 and higher) at http://www.ravarcade.pl/
If you do not have Future Pinball with BAM installed, I would recommend you use the all-in-one installer, also available at http://www.ravarcade.pl/

Also, I have included the master files higher res versions of the art for those with 4k cabinets. I also included one of my master art files if someone wants to make a wheel image.

Jungle Girl has a lot of settings that can be changed within the script including adjustments of BAM settings, as well as the Ball rolling sound script from smoke. This also debuts some brand new systems that I have written just for Jungle Girl, mostly to try and get FP to "play nicely" and to work around some of the more annoying things with FP physics. These are experimental, and are switchable in the script. You vpxers are more than welcome to give this a spin as well, fp physics have come a long way in just a year, especially with BAM now giving us the ability to shape the game play and flow of the game a lot more.  Still, maybe we can make it better so everyone is welcome to comment or have suggestions.

This is a"preview" release, very little else needs to be done, it contains some brand new things with the physics so I uploaded this so the other fp table devs can have a good look. This is available at Pinball Nirvana, a final version (once I get back from vacation) based on any issues cropping up or additional stuff I add will be released to multiple sites  in April.

This is just a very fun table to play, I'm pretty sure people will be quite surprised at how good FP plays this. (Even though it still screws up...)

Suppose I should have updated this one ages ago.

 

Jungle Girl fpx has now been released as version 1.1.
This version is a bug fix and other minor script changes. Thanks to all that notified me.

The big highlight is the debut of my shivaFlippers system that now has a variable coil system, better aiming, and a "fake EOS". This is a pretty noticeable improvement to FP flippers and down the road, I hope they can be improved even more.

The variable coil adds dynamic omega (or strength to you vp people) for each flipper angle of a flipper swing until you release the flipper button. This allows you to do tap passes (depending on hardware and reflexes with a quick flick of the button) as well as "loft" shots. This is adjustable, and there's presets for cabinet or desktop users, as well as the ability to make your own presets. Just look in the script for more details.

There has also been some pretty big changes to my physics for the game as I have learned a lot about FP the last year, and with this new version, Jungle Girl fpx is one of the best games in terms of playability out there. The game is just a blast to play now.
